Creature - UPDATED (woohoo)
    #2397110 - 03/03/04 04:02 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

so I ended up making:

http://strumpling.hallucinaut.com/desktop/2004/03-03-2004/Creature.jpg

from http://strumpling.hallucinaut.com/Drawn/03-01-2004/Scanned-Creature.jpg

Are either of them very cool?

edit: changed title for shameless self-plug and added update below

i like the design of the creature a lot  :thumbup:

i think what needs work on the colored version is building form using shading ... shadows and a mostly consistent light source would really bring out the creature in the photoshop version ... having separate colors from the background would also enhance it ...

the easiest way to make a pencil scan BOLD is to adjust the contrast up until the lines are dark and solid ... then, add a new layer over and set it to Multiply (which you probably already know), so that you can color without interfering with the black outline ...

by shading, i mean creating an artificial light source which creates highlights and shadows on the character, essentially making him 3d ...

this is one of my scanned/shaded works from a while ago, if you still don?t understand what i mean by shading:





and when i said set the layer to multiply, i mean changing the style of the layer .. there is something that says Normal above the layers ... change Normal to Multiply by clicking it and selecting from the drop down menu ... now notice that you can color over your other layers without disturbing the black outline ... that?s how i did the drawing above

heh, well i understand the concept of "shading"

i guess what it comes down to is that im not skilled enough with Photoshop to shade as well as you do or have done.

Sometimes coloring in the lines isn't necessary :wink:

much better, it looks great

now try getting the texture of the creature to meld with his outline, so that it looks more real (less comic-book-inked looking) ... if you want to, that is ..

but yea excellent job =)

yeah, strump, I like the direction it's going.
I think you could take it further, and also blend his outline with the texture more (what HB said).
